Reviews:

Colin Hanks is flat and uninspired in this otherwise decent film.
I think the film would have been great if they cast someone besides Colin Hanks. He is undeniably mediocre in this role. He performance is flat and drab and when I see him perform I can not help but think how much better the scene would be if someone else starred. I don’t have a problem with this kid trying to cut his teeth in acting but do we all have to watch him learn to act on film. Seriously does Colin’s dad Tom Hanks have to manufacture films just so his kid can have and acting career. I know Hollywood is nothing more than nepotism as a business but when the actor really doesn’t cut it it’s all the more insulting to the public and shame on the director for not trying to get more out of him.

Malkovich has rarely been better
“The Great Buck Howard” is a near-perfect faux biopic that will have you grinning from ear to ear for ninety euphoric minutes. John Malkovich plays the title character, an ego-driven mentalist loosely based on the Amazing Kreskin. We’re told that Buck had the moniker “Great” bestowed on him by none other than the late Johnny Carson himself after the magician appeared on the Tonight Show sixty-one times in the heyday of his career. The humorously named Troy Gable (Colin Hanks) is the law student (and narrator of the tale) who takes a pass on a promising career as an attorney to serve as Buck’s road manager, a move that causes great consternation for the young man’s father, nicely played in a cameo appearance by Colin’s real-life dad, Tom Hanks.

Part inveterate con man, part grandiose showman and part purveyor of down home wisdom and folksiness, Buck Howard turns out to be the perfect instructor for a young man eager to become wise in the ways of human nature. Howard is what P.T. Barnum would have been had he been reduced to playing smaller venues, an entertainer par excellence who really knows how to work his audience for ego-gratification and profit – in short, a figure as uniquely American as the lone frontiersman or trailblazing entrepreneur. Howard probably believes only half of what he’s selling, but it is that half that keeps him going in the face of declining popularity and ever-dwindling crowds. For Howard is just shy of turning into a has-been when, as if by magic, he finds himself unexpectedly mounting a full court media comeback.

A satirical and affectionate paean to the world of show biz and the bizarre creatures that inhabit it, “The Great Buck Howard” boasts a witty, flavorful script and stylish direction by the multi-talented Sean McGinly. The movie also features a lovely performance by Emily Blunt as a publicist and Troy’s potential love interest, while a number of well known celebrities – John Stewart, Regis and Kathy Lee (or is it Kelly?), Conan O’Brien, George Takei and Tom Arnold among them – make brief appearances as themselves.

But it is Malkovich who grabs the material by the horns and runs with it. With his every gesture and facial expression, Malkovich turns the Great Buck Howard into a savvy combination of egotism, bravado, humility and pathos. One minute he’s an impossible slave-driver, the next a paternalistic mentor – one minute a clear-eyed pragmatist, the next a dewy-eyed visionary and sentimentalist. It is Malkovich’s ability to seamlessly meld all these contradictory traits into an instantly recognizable and utterly lovable character that ultimately makes “The Great Buck Howard” the richly entertaining experience it is.
